BASICS: "Hummingbirds.....where is the person, I ask, who, on observing this glittering fragment of the rainbow, would not pause, admire, and turn his mind with reverence..." (J. J. Audubon).
This is a blog about my summer life at the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary, at my winter garden, Calypso, in the Bahamas, and aspects of life in general.
This private sanctuary is ONLY open certain, very limited, dates/times, starting july 20, and ending sept 15, and ONLY by specific private appointment, at particular, available "slot" times posted at this blog. No visits of any type without a confirmed appointment (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu)

Activity picking up
We are starting to see more activity, just in time for the first visitors, with juveniles giving Fred a lot of work, and sometimes escaping his vigilance. Here's a video from yesterday (saturday) showing a juvie feeding at various types of salvia (all currently available at lihummingbirdplants.com)
We are open sunday morning 10-12.30 july 23 - shoot me an email to reserve. Dates for next week will be announced shortly.
